Recipe notes and tips

  • Use chicken breast. You may use boneless chicken thighs but we much prefer using chicken breast.
  • Red peppers: this can be substituted with any other bell pepper. Yellow, green, or orange will work.
  • Onion: we used red/purple onion, if you can’t find any just use any onion.
  • Do not overcook the chicken so it doesn’t dry out and get rubbery.
  • Any yogurt would work as well instead of Greek yogurt.
  • Soak the wooden skewers for a good 15-20 minutes to preventing them from burning.
  • Green olive tapenade could be an optional ingredient but adds a great taste.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days
  • Also, you can prepare this ahead. Marinate the chicken a day before.
